  • We become good at what we practice and most of us are experts at practicing distraction. We live in a society that trains us to multi-task and jump from one thing to another in an uncontrolled way. The great panacea for a world plagued by distraction is learning and practicing the art of concentration. Living as a Hindu monk for 10 years Dandapani was trained in understanding the mind. There he learned and practiced the fine art of bringing concentration into everyday life. In this talk, Dandapani will share spiritual tools to learn to create unwavering focus in our lives and the boundless benefits that result from it.www.tedxreno.comDandapani is a Hindu priest, speaker on self-development and an entrepreneur.This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

    @Gulmira we hv those many gods bcuz those many ways of spiritual path we can create more if we want.. this is the only philosophy which says god did not create us.. God is not the ultimate thing, liberation is the ultimate thing of life...
